Bio

Andrea became a CS educator because there were students at her school who demonstrated interest after a few years of participating in the annual Hour of Code event. Andrea started by doing HoC with students, and eventually took a crash course in APCSP with Mobile CSP curriculum educators, and brought the first official CS course to her school. She also started teaching CS at the middle school level as a part of weekly science work, and is now currently teaching a JavaScript and Justice course that ties in algorithmic justice in with coding. She hopes to keep learning, and wants to work with other educators to help create CS curriculum that embeds social justice into its weekly work.
